The Shroud of Turin Center was established in 1997 to provide educational services to the public and to conduct scientific and historical research. The Center houses full-size color transparencies and full-size black-and-white negative transparencies of the Shroud, and a full-size replica of the Cross of the Crucifixion. The transparencies are replicas of high-resolution photographs taken during the scientific investigation by the STURP team in 1978. The Center undertakes an active dialogue with the university communities of central Virginia.
The Center periodically conducts interactive, multimedia presentations onsite on the many different aspects of the science and history of the Shroud, as well as presentations to various groups by request.
To schedule a multimedia presentation with Q&A tailored to the interests of your group, please contact us.
The Center is also providing presentations on different dates at several different locations within the Commonwealth as well as in North Carolina. Group presentations may also be scheduled by request.
